Orthodontics For Teens In Manassas
A milestone for many young adults, orthodontics builds confidence and brings out the best of their smiles.
Teeth-Straightening Solutions From The Teenage Years And Beyond
Most children lose their baby teeth by the age of 13. Before they’ve even lost their last few baby teeth and have most of their adult teeth it’s pretty easy to tell where there will be over-crowding or where permanent teeth are coming in crooked. This is the best time to begin orthodontic treatment while they’re still settling in to their permanent adult smile.
As much as we love bringing out the natural beauty of a smile, orthodontic treatment is even more important for their oral health. Misaligned teeth and a crooked bite can be difficult to clean properly, feel uncomfortable and even cause aches and pains. With orthodontic treatment, these issues can be resolved in as little as 6 months.
Your teen might benefit from orthodontic treatment if they have:
An overbite – when the upper teeth sit too far forward.
Excessive spacing – gaps or spaces between the teeth.
An underbite – when the lower teeth sit too far forward.
Crowding – when teeth are overlapping or impossible to floss.
Crossbite – a bite that doesn’t mesh comfortably.
Pain - Chronic headaches, jaw pain, or upper back and neck pain.
Orthodontic Treatment Options
There are many different treatment options available depending on the patient’s personal needs and their budget. Here are a few of the options that may be available:
When you hear the word braces, you most likely think of those bulky metal brackets with wires. Modern dental brackets are now smaller, less noticeable, and just as effective as the older bulkier ones. They’re easier to keep clean and much more comfortable.
If you’re looking for braces, we also offer clear brackets that tend to be more popular among our young adult patients. These brackets are designed to combine conventional orthodontics with discretion. At a quick glance, no one will even notice the braces.
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, have rapidly gained in popularity. A series of custom-made transparent trays gradually shift teeth into their ideal position. They fit snuggly and precisely and can occasionally be removed to eat, to brush and floss like normal, and for the occasional special occasion like a school dance or a class presentation.
